If you’re experiencing déjà vu right now, don’t be alarmed. The Jones just looks and sounds familiar because it’s in the same Noho space that used to house Great Jones Cafe. It still has the same bright red exterior and the same bust of Elvis in the window, but now the tiny place is run by the people behind Fedora and Jeffrey’s Grocery, and the menu is seafood-focused, with things like tuna carpaccio, poached prawns, and a big serving of clams in a cajun broth you’ll want to drink straight from the bowl. It’s currently only open for breakfast and lunch, and if we didn’t have jobs, we could see ourselves coming here several times a week for some morning eggs or toast with ricotta.

Il Buco is still one of the most special restaurants we’ve got in NYC, and we’d like to remind you of that.
Il Buco Alimentari e Vineria
The Italian food at Noho’s Il Buco Alimentari e Vineria has the honor of being among the only things in history to improve after a key lineup change.
Balthazar, you had a good 16-year run, but it’s time to step aside. Lafayette is now the quintessential French bistro of bustling downtown NYC.

Untitled at The Whitney
Dinner in an art museum, from Danny Meyer and Michael Anthony. Untitled at The Whitney is anything but boring.
Death & Co
Death & Co. feels like it was built just for us. The drink list is ridiculous…it’s nearly impossible to settle on something because each beverage is intriguing and awesome. And thankfully the food doesn’t suck either.
Although they’re known for their libations at Fort Defiance, this restaurant doesn’t feel like one of those super-cool, pretentious cocktail dens that we all know too well. It has the promise of the perfect neighborhood spot that, if we lived in this hood, we’d frequent all the time.

Gato, Bobby Flay’s Mediterranean spot in Noho, isn’t quite as good as it was when it opened, but it’s still a useful option in certain situations.
Fedora is in the basement of a townhouse in the West Village, and it feels like a dinner party in a speakeasy that your friends happen to own.
